Self care begins with language. What Is it you tell yourself? In the meantime before I begin The Examined Life vlog essays I will write here to begin discussions.
Joy Howarth's post on language inspired me: Amazing. For your consideration words themselves matter as the internal is directly expressed through the words we use.
Do your words love and honor congruently who you want to be?

Language and Meaning: a primer...
So turn your eyes inward to examine the words and energy you use to limit or love yourself.
Eliminate all negatives by turning them into positives.
The mind does not understand negatives. Ex. I do not want you to think of a blue tree on a blue ski slope where a black Darth Vader and a han solo have a blue snowball fight. Not only do you have to visualize it, but it is also quite a foppish scene.. but seriously.
The mind works only in words and images. So when you say anything your mind will make it so.
You make your beliefs and then your beliefs make you. *
Words are the beginning of all manifestations.
So when you say this traffic is killing me, your mind will decide to associate pain with traffic.*
Other great language hacks: You only have one but(t) and it's just fine. Whenever you use but, you negate everything that came before it. And that is a buttheaded move.
I love her but I could never be with her. It means simply the truth in language is:
I could never be with her.
Now replace but with though or eventhough (thoughts arise like butterflies..;) and equal energy flows through the sentence without imposed limitation:
I love her even though I cannot be with her.
Finally eliminate the word Should especially when dealing w your opinions and advice to others.
You should take that class.
Nothing turns the mind against itself more than limiting language.
So in conclusion, these techniques come from books like Slight of Mouth or the art of Persuasion and from a study called NLP or neuro linguistic programming that holds language alone's power to Express and manifest the world within.
So the trick from nlp. An state change. I want you to
Think about a time when you were happy, confident, or choose you own one distinct positive feeling. Now concentrate on what you saw, what your heard, what you smelled, and most important how you felt. Now find this feeling in your body. Where is it? What color. What energy? Imagine it coming out if your body and floating a few feet in front of your face. Now brighten it a bit. And now imagine it starting to grow to twice, three times, four times its size and more. And as it grows,flows, and its intensity get bigger, feel it amplify. Now spin it. When you feel that feeling, that absolute intensely positive feeling spin it and intensify it more. Take a deep breath and see that pure happy energy go into your heart and radiate through your body. And you cannot help but feel that happiness.
